Where to Buy Quality Matcha and Japanese Tea Outside Japan

June 05, 2023

Where to Buy Quality Matcha and Japanese Tea Outside Japan

I oftentimes receive inquiries from our Japanese green tea followers, asking whether the Japanese Green Tea Co. offers shipments to countries outside the USA, Canada, UK, and Australia. (Click here to learn how to get free shipping in these four countries.)

To answer the question simply, Yes. 

The Japanese Green Tea Company does ship worldwide. Unfortunately for many, international shipping costs to foreign countries can be very expensive. So, I came up with what I hope is a helpful solution.

I have been doing some research to uncover some purveyors who may offer good green tea options in countries outside Japan and the United States. I want my customers to have an alternative to our premium, tasty Japanese green tea matcha and sencha if shipping costs from our company to their country would be prohibitive.

The following list has been compiled from my research. In many of the companies on the following list, I have had a personal and positive experience.


  • Austria

      The founder, Budoor, lived in Japan for 7 years, and she is an Urasenke chadō practitioner.

      Here is what Budoor mentions about her experience living in Japan:

      "Living in Japan and practicing chadō truly changed my life, so I wanted to share its beauty by encouraging a life of tranquility with tea.

      I obtained my masters from Kyushu University "九州大学" where I studied "人文科学" (Japanese Humanities) and my love for Japanese culture grew even stronger. I wrote my thesis on the 家元 (iemoto system), a system that governs the tea ceremony, and I even had the privilege to meet the 15th Urasenke iemoto, Hōunsai 鵬雲斎, which was a dream. Through my research and field work, I was fortunate to build a good relationship with tea farmers and artisans, which allowed me to establish the Japanese tea house in Bahrain, "chawan."
      The shop aims to spread awareness not only about tea culture in the Middle East but also about the beauty of Japanese culture. During my time in Japan, I also joined a 着物教室 (kimono class) to learn how to professionally wear a kimono and teach the world about it. I believe that the Japanese tradition should be passed on to the new generation, as its uniqueness and beauty are surreal. "
